Massage therapy consists of hands-on manipulation and treatment of the soft tissues of the body for the purpose of optimizing health and well-being. These soft tissues include the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, and ligaments.
Massage therapy can help with soft tissue damage, injuries, pain management, impaired mobility, and can also help manage stress relief.
Treatment has a therapeutic effect on the body, acting on the muscular, nervous, and circulatory systems. It can be used both as treatment for an existing concern, or for preventative care.
Prior to treatment, your massage therapist will review your health history and perform an initial assessment to better understand your injury or concern. From there, they will propose a personalized treatment plan to you.
Your privacy during treatment will always be respected, and consent must be obtained to work on any part of the body. You may withdraw your consent at any time. Your massage therapist will work with your level of pain tolerance throughout the treatment, and you may inform your therapist of any discomfort during treatment.
Massage therapy is covered by most third-party insurance providers.
